Man flies first class seated near corpse


LONDON - A passenger in first class woke up to a shock when he found himself sitting near a corpse on a British Airways flight, British newspapers reported on Monday.

Paul Trinder, 54, said cabin crew moved the body of the elderly woman from the economy section where she had died after take-off, the Mirror and Sun tabloids said.

"The corpse was strapped into the seat but because of turbulence it kept slipping down on to the floor," Trinder, a businessman, was quoted as saying. "It was horrific. The body had to be wedged in place with lots of pillows."

The woman's daughter was also upgraded and spent the rest of the nine-hour flight from Delhi to London grieving next to her dead mother, the Sun reported.

The Guardian newspaper said the incident happened last week.

British Airways has apologized for any distress suffered, according to the reports. The Mirror quoted BA as saying: "We apologize, but our crew were working in difficult circumstances and chose the option they thought would cause least disruption."

+1 or up by the pilot

after all its his rough take off that kill the woman
so u would have them put her up by the pilot for him to freak out and the whole plane go down and kill everybody else.. :confused

i guess they were just tryin to get her away from the majority of the passengers and not be to disrespectful to the dead.. plus too, the daughter was there mournin her mother, i dont think shovin her in an airplane latrine would help the daughter feel any better..

the perspective i was lookin as is that the flight attendants probably did not want to upset the daughter further or the majority of the passengers..

i have no idea what the size of a fridge look like on a plane but i dont suppose its big enough to hold a dead body... and in addition to the fact that.. how u goin put a dead body next to the food u goin serve the people on the plane.. i do not think they will be too pleased..
